If you called it, raise your hand.

Realizing that chronically unreliable personal demon chaser Paulo Filho will do well to make it to one of his scheduled July Impact Fighting Championship bouts, the Australia Athletic Commission has disallowed the Brazilian from competing on both the July 10 and July 18 cards as planned.

Graciemag announced the news we have all been predicting today.

Filho (20-1), who was originally also slated to fight at Impact FC's scrapped July 3 event in Perth, takes on K-1 Heroes, PRIDE and UFC veteran Denis Kang (32-12-1, 2 NC) on July 18 in Sydney if he makes it to the show.

The embattled former WEC middleweight champion has pulled out of two scheduled bouts in the past four months, which makes his participation in the event questionable.

His opponent for the July 10 event, John Kolosci has been dropped from the card, which has changed considerably since the original line-up was announced. It could have something to do with the reliability of the fighters the promotion is banking on for the shows.

According to the Impact FC website, Karo Parisyan's (18-5, 1 NC) opponent has also changed. Originally scheduled to take on Luis Dutra Jr., "The Heat" will now face 5-1 Australia native Ben "Knuckles 5-Percenter" Mortimer on the card.
